Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - J.K. Rowling, John Kerr Tiffany, Jack Thorne 3/5 stars? I'm not sure.

I kind of liked the direction of the story from about 30%. The part before that is just massively depressing. It's also depressing after that though and didn't really leave me with happy feelings. It's nothing like the bookseries.

That would be fine, except that it just falls a bit flat. I miss a bit more character building and information. They never really become 'real' characters. They remain 'thin' and distant

I kind of wished this series would have been left alone, it ended it perfectly on it's own. All the characters haven't really turned out how I'd hoped.

Was it something different and daring? Yes. But I would've enjoyed it more if it just wasn't so depressing and had a little more depth to it.

I'm curious how they transfer some of these concepts to the stage, it'll probably tale a lot of special effects.
